Government Functions Acceleration in Tourist Village Development: a Case Study of Dermaji Village
Keywords:Government Functions, Development, Tourism Village
Purpose: The current research analyzes the local government’s functions in developing a village into a tourism destination.
Theoretical framework: Using a qualitative data interaction model as the underpinning theoretical framework, which was presented by Miles et al. (2014), to accomplish this, this current research conducts a componential interactive data analysis model.
Design/methodology/approach: This research used Ryaas Rasyid’s concepts of regulatory function, service function, empowerment function and development function. These functions’ implementation was viewed from Cooper’s theory of tourism object components. The research used the descriptive method with a qualitative approach, applying field studies, observations, interviews, and documentation for data collection.
Findings: It has been revealed that the obstacles include: no regional regulations yet regarding tourist villages; lack of competent human resources; lack of promotional activities; lack of government support; lack of coordination between stakeholders; insufficient tourism facilities and infrastructure; and lack of guidance to tourism development actors by local governments. In overcoming it, local governments are making efforts to improve the quality of human resources, increase promotional activities through the internet as well as repackage tourist attractions activities; coordinate between sectors in planning and implementation, allocate funds to establish appropriate tourism facilities and infrastructure; offering more guidance to the community and tourism business actors and also allocating special funds for the construction of road access to the Dermaji Village as a tourism destination.
Research, Practical & Social implications: The implication drawn from this research helps the researchers and stakeholders develop a Tourist Village to encourage local development and increase the welfare and prosperity of the local community.
Originality/value: This finding found that the roles of local government, the village government, the private sector, tourism organizations and the community have significant in managing tourism villages.
